For more than 25 years, Northern Colorado has come together to help homeless pets in need at Larimer Humane Society’s annual Fire Hydrant 5K & Paws on the Promenade. This fun, family-friendly walk/run and expo is the biggest canine party of the year, complete with a dog friendly 5K walk/run, a pet expo featuring more than 70 vendors, dog contests and demonstrations, a Healthy Kids Run and new Kids Zone!
Our 27th Annual Fire Hydrant 5K & Paws on the Promenade held on Saturday, June 3, 2017 was the biggest canine party of the year! More than 1,200 participants, including 740 walkers/ runners, 350 dogs, 144 volunteers and 72 vendors came out to join the fun and support homeless animals in need! Because of our amazing community, we raised more than $85,000 to help the thousands of homeless, injured, ill, and orphaned animals cared for by Larimer Humane Society each year.
Hi I’m Bandon! I got to be the spokesdog and
inspiration for the 27th Annual Fire Hydrant 5K & Paws on
the Promenade logo because my mom, Michelle Hilaire, is
awesome and was the top pledge-raiser for last year’s event.
You’ll be hearing a lot from me over the next few months so
I thought I’d take the time to introduce myself and tell you
little about me!
- I’m a 10-year-old Beagle
- My favorite activities are eating and sleeping and I’m really good at both!
- I am named after a golf course in Oregon, Bandon Dunes
- I’m a good boy and have my parents trained so well that I can get them to give me treats every time I go outside to go potty
Stay tuned to see who the spokesdog for the 28th Annual Fire Hydrant 5K & Paws on the Promenade will be!
